Abstract

While the eyes of most analysts had been pointed on searching the apparition of the “black swan” (Taleb 2007), waiting with fear for the arrival of an unexpected event that would generate the new crisis, nobody wanted to see the “gray rhino” (a well-known risk that we want to ignore) that had been running furiously toward us by announcing the leap in the level of the environmental crisis, the umpteenth consequence of climate change on our lives. The COVID-19 pandemic, in fact, after numerous unheard alarms (Meadows, Meadows et al. 1972; Rockström et al. 2009), was the signal that the planet sent to our species to warn us to change: 98% of the Earth (nature) rebelled against the enormous environmental impact produced by the voracity of 2% (cities).
